Petal drops work best for ceremonies taking place under an arch, canopy or gazebo. To create the petal drop, cut clear or white plastic or fabric into a rectangle 4-6 feet in length. Attached long fabric ties or ribbon to the 2 front corners of the fabric. You are going to secure the fabric to the inside of the top of the gazebo. Start with the 2 back corners of the fabric and secure them with ties, nails or staples to the top of the gazebo. You want these to be strong so they remain attached after the petals have dropped. Next loosely attach the front corners of the fabric to the gazebo roof with Velcro or fabric ties. The long ties should remain hanging (and can be tucked behind the sides of the gazebo) until the kiss. Load the petals on the fabric once secure. When it’s time to kiss, the best man and maid of honor pull the long ties, detaching the front corners of the fabric and releasing the petals.
